Members are appointed by Council resolution. The duration of the volunteer mandate of each citizen-member is two (2) years, with the possibility of being renewed.
The Planning Advisory Committee is composed of 7 members: 2 Councillors and 5 Citizens. It is called upon to study and make recommendations to the Town Council on Site Planning and Architectural Integration Programs (SPAIP), Minor Derogations to Urban Planning By-Laws, Conditional Uses, Specific Construction, Alteration or Occupancy Proposal for an Immovable (SCAOPI), Comprehensive Development Plans and any other requests related to land use planning. The CCUDD usually meets once a month in the evening.
Citizens interested in applying must reside in Sutton and send a letter of motivation, in which they outline their interests, relevant experiences, skills, expertise or training in urban planning, architecture, construction, property development, landscape architecture, design, engineering, environmental science, economic and social development, heritage or agriculture that can sustain the deliberations of the committee.

Closure of the municipal ecocentre in 2020
The Sutton municipal ecocentre will close its doors in 2020. This decision has been taken because conditions required to ensure environmental and economic viability of the project were not met as part of the process to improve the regional ecocentre service. Essentially, the decision to close the Town of Sutton’s ecocentre is based on the following considerations:
- The existence of two parallel services, regional (MRC) as regards and municipal, creates confusion as regards the nature of the recyclable materials accepted at each location;
- The objective of municipal recycling being profitable for the preservation of the environment was not met;
- In a context of scarcity of resources, it has become impossible for the Town to find the personnel necessary to provide this service;
- This is part of the policy of reducing costs relating to garbage collection.
In order to ensure the efficient recycling of eligible materials, the Sutton population will be able to continue to use the usual garbage collection services and the services provided by the ecocentre of the MRC of Brome-Missisquoi which are in the process of optimizing their centre (new layout of the site coming in 2020).
Work on the outdoor skating rink and ice path
Work has started on the skating rink and ice path at the Goyette Hill park. We need a good base of compacted snow and a cold weather stretch to flood the surface to allow us to offer good ice conditions. We ask citizens to cooperate with us and to avoid using the skating rink and the ice path until the announcement of the opening.
We hope that the snow and cold weather continues in the days to come which will allow us to achieve as quickly as possible a nice outdoor skating rink and ice path.
You can find information on the conditions of the outdoor skating rink and ice path on the Town’s website: https://sutton.ca/en/ . The conditions are updated every day.
